As Chief Marketing Officer at Quad, Josh Golden is architecting the evolution of Quad as a marketing experience company. He leads a highly collaborative team that works with marketers around the world to clear the path for better, deeper, easier consumer engagement.
Building on Quad’s history as a commercial printer with deep knowledge in key marketing areas, Josh is helping the company maximize its assets to eliminate the interference that otherwise causes marketers to lose time, money, and customers. Josh sees Quad as an emergent leader in “frictionless marketing.”
With more than two decades of experience in marketing, branding, media, and content, Josh is one of the most connected connectors in the marketing ecosystem. Prior to joining Quad in 2021, Josh was president and publisher of Ad Age where he spurred transformative growth for the 90-year trade publication and media brand. His passion for driving evolution was also on display as vice president, Global Digital Marketing, at Xerox; group director of Digital Marketing at NBC Universal; Chief Digital Officer at Grey Group; managing director, Digital at Havas; and head of the digital division at Young & Rubicam.
A self-proclaimed “professional groupie,” Josh avidly follows and cheers people who pursue their passions. He likes riding his bike and playing a little tennis, and he makes a mean banana bread. He lives in Westchester with his wife and two teenage children.
Josh received his MBA from New York University and his B.S. in Communications from Ithaca College. He sits on the board of the Epilepsy Foundation of America.
